On August 2, 2021, the DGSC Steering Committee issued a statement to CUNY Chancellor Matos Rodriguez and the Board of Trustees on the ongoing out-of-state tuition issue. In this statement, the DGSC Steering Committee expresses its support for incoming second year students who were unable to establish residency in New York this past year due to the pandemic and now risk being charged out-of-state tuition. Echoing student demands made in a petition this past May, the statement calls upon the CUNY administration and Board of Trustees to extend the out-of-state tuition waiver to these students for the 2021-2022 academic year.
